About us

Achieving more together

The German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services is a registered society in which commercial laundries have been organised since 1953. Together they offer their customers a unique level of quality assurance in the field of laundry care. And as a quality association, all members benefit from the pioneering measures, especially in today's challenging market environment.

All from a single source

To support our membership companies in the best possible way, we concentrate on the three pillars of quality assurance, market development and further training. 
Competitiveness and efficiency of our member companies are our top priorities - for this we offer a comprehensive range of tailor-made services and solutions.
As a customer of our member companies, you can rely on consistently high laundry quality and hygiene management at the highest level.

Quality and hygiene have a system with us

Our RAL Quality Mark 992 is unique - assured hygiene, the highest quality and consistent process safety are guaranteed at all times. Strict normative requirements stand for safety and reliability. The independent and neutral textile testing service provider and research partner Hohenstein is responsible for the consistent quality assurance of our operations. 
In this context, it is important to us that we do not consider ourselves to be some kind of "hygiene police", but that we consistently implement the requirements for quality and hygiene. After all, the Corona pandemic has shown how important the issue of hygiene is - and by far not only in the health sector. 
Sustainability and ecology are important to us. For us, outstanding quality always includes maintaining the value of textiles and the careful use of resources. 
It is crucial to us and our member companies to ensure that the textiles entrusted to us have the longest possible service life and reliable functional maintenance. 
Our member companies are always up to date: they have access to exclusive specialist information, can fall back on an extensive range of further training measures and, if required, can rely on competent company analysis and advice.
